Got the Ford T 18, now hoping for some guidance

I originally posted this in the CJ thread as I normally have no posts in this one I failed to notice this one dedicated to Drivetrain (my bad)

I got this 1980 (by the code) Ford T 18 w/the 6.32 granny for $20 over the $50 core at my local wrecking yard as the gearshift was stuck. 5 seconds at a local shop with a large screwdriver down the gearshift hole and it was free.

This is my first attempt at rebuilding a transmission but luckily the T 150 in my Jeep is working fine so this project isn't urgent for the time being.
I craked the case last weekend and I found the First-Second Clutch Sleeve showed signs of wear on the beveled side while my cursory novice look inside the case I saw no other obvious signs of wear.

The Inner Sanctum

The Shift Control Housing



I've found some posts on how others have rebuilt theirs but I'm thinking some information is lacking and/or inconclusive. Lacking a mentor (Mac of Macs Jeeparts) that passed away a couple of years ago I'm looking to the forums I belong to for help.
Initially I think I'm needing some new tools to add to my two rollaways Lock Ring expanders, Copper mallet etc. Any information of tools needed would be great!

Thanks and a lift of the lynch lid.

Gus

The trans seems very clean on the inside. Personally, unless you feel the bearings are bad, I would run it. The "wear " on the slider is normal and won't effect the transmissions operation.

Granted, I don't know what I'm looking at but the close up of that gear has me concerned. In the meantime gathering special tools.

From another forum I saw a fresh First-Second Clutch Sleeve, and mine is toast
